Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

Some knitting content

"Knitters'" magazine had a great modular shawl pattern. My yarn didn't go nearly as far as I hoped, so I wound up improvising. It has a certain eccentric charm - just like me.
The hand-spun mystery batt provided some interesting, color variations. The end of the silk and alpaca that Dave spun for me makes a great frame, and some left-over horned dorset handspun singles made the white ends. The patern is from the "Swing, Swagger,Drape" book. Of course, I just took the concept and danced off sideways with it. But it was fun and easy and bears repeating.

On the sheep front, it looks as if Lulu and the boys have been following my blog. And Wooley's offer has struck a number of nerves.
"The alluring little minx and her escorts are ready to come home to you. Just in time, before Sockers and Bobby get into it! I'll bring them on Wednesday."

    Don't you know you should never let sheep use the Internet? Some countries have laws about it.

    Glad to see that Lulu is an "equal-opportunity" lover. Poor Bobby.

    Those sheep do keep you on your toes!

    Lovely shawl to go with all of that eccentric charm :-)

    Great shawl, I love the way the white 'fades in'!

    Ah, Lulu - yes, sheep on the internet, a very dangerous thing!

    What a lovely shawl... I love it... and it's not 'eccentric'--it's creative and original!
